I really keep going back and forth on the idea of a subscription service. Like those gimmicky box services but with actually great stuff in it and before everyone else. Keep what you like, send back what you don't.
Fwiw, I love this idea. I'm still learning to trust that I would look good in some of your items that look great on a screen, but would be a departure for me. Getting a box sent to me would have the effect of ordering for me things that I might not on my own.

For the nmwa slippers: should I go with 44 for 10.5D on brannock/dress shoes?
You're a 43 in Buttero? 44 in Aurlands?

You ever consider carrying Yuketen stuff? Already got Monitaly and Chamula, and I feel like with Yuketen’s stylistic range you could do some cool stuff.
We look at it every time we see Monitaly (they show together). Just never got that bug 🤷🏻‍♂️

@gdl203, for the moroccan slippers, same size as Castaner loafadrille? I normally wear US9.5 dress shoe and 43 Castaner.
I wear the same size in Castaner and those

I got the large and I normally get a size 3 or medium in brands typically. It just fits a little tight under the pit area...
Yeah, that's par for the course with these. It will relax after a few wears for sure.

I'm a 10.5D Brannock and always thought we wore the same size in things, but the recent Buttero thing threw me off. Either way, the 43 is the right size for me. I wear 43 Buttero (42.5 in the boots), 43 Castaner, and 9.5D in my LHS

also can we talk about this cotton linen houndstooth shirt jacket?!?

Gotta make the effort to go back and quote this one. This jacket looks pretty intense on a hanger but SO, SO GOOD once you put it on. Every once in a while we get a piece like that so I wanted to make a note of it here.

You're a 43 in Buttero? 44 in Aurlands?
Def 44 in Auarlands, maybe 42.5 in Buttero.

Yeah man I dunno what to say anymore, I think length I'm almost 10.75 in my left foot. Probably in the Tom boots I'm a 42.5 best. But the 43 Castaner loafspadrilles are mad tight, but the 43 pablos are perfect.

@troika The loafspadrilles and pablos are same fit on my foot (same size 44) so it comes down to the shape of your foot (vs last). What I would say about this is that the moccasin loafer shape from El Karti (our Moroccan slipper artisan) has a (much) lower toe box than the slipper shape. So if your foot has volume and you get uncomfortable in low toe box shoes, maybe avoid that shape and go for the slipper shape

Are the slippers / mocs in half sizes? If not, what is the "standard" sizing convention (i.e., US 10D is a 43?).
